Beautiful Hotel
Husband and I stayed for 12 nights over Christmas/NY. The hotel is very large and can seem like a rabbit warren once inside as parts of the layout are on different layers. You may need to take a lift from one part of the accommodation, exit, walk some distance and then use another lift to get to you accommodation, as we found. The staff were all very helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. You can take breakfast in the large Alfama dining room, or if you prefer a more intimate space, use the dining facilities of the Eden Mare next door but this has a slightly smaller menu option. Either way, they food was wonderful. Our only gripe about the hotel is its location to the centre of Funchal. It takes a good 40 minutes to walk into town and this is very hilly, especially on the return. The hotel does have a courtesy coach, but unfortunately the last journey into town is around 17.00 and so too early if you want to go out for an evening meal. We would certainly recommend the Porto Mare to anyone who is fit and doesn't mind walking.

Great time
Lovely hotel with fabulous grounds and plenty of facilities to keep guest entertained. Good location close to the Lido & a regular bus service to town if you don’t fancy the 30 minute walk.

Exceptional Porto Mare hotel
Without doubt the best hotel I've stayed in, cannot understand why it isn't 5*, it's better than any l have stayed in. The Pools, indoor and out and all of the facilities are superb. The food both at breakfast and evening meal is wonderful, with such a huge choice, so good we never ventured away from the buffet. The gardens are amazing with a dedicated orchid garden housing dozens of different orchids. We will definately go again.

Ideal holiday break in Madeira
Top marks to Porto Mare hotel for a most enjoyable stay. Friendly reception, efficient service and a very comfortable room. Excellent buffet breakfast and reasonably priced meals in choice of restaurants. Spacious gardens and wide range of leisure facilities. Useful shuttle bus service downtown. The fact that so many guests were return visitors is a testimony to popularity of the hotel.

First class stay
Our only concern is ........where is the 5th Star we have staying 5 Star hotels that don’t match this standard. EXCELLENT, quiet room, great view, superb breakfast choice, although a buffet is was kept wonderfully clean and tidy, the staff were very smart and attentive, alas the coffee was a bit strong for our licking

Fantastic Hotel with pleanty to do
Arrived at hotel early and they had our room ready which was fantastic. Large spacious room with a balcony overlooking the sea. Room was immaculate. Staff were friendly and helpful. Pools looked gorgeous but as we only had the weekend to stay we explored the area as much as possible, so didn't really use the facilities in the hotel. Free shuttle bus to the city provided by the hotel. Breakfast was good with a wide variety on offer. Ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food was good. We would definitely go back here.

Well run, well located, great atmosphere.
Wonderful hotel. We usually stay in smaller historic hotels so were apprehensive that Porte Mare might be too big and lack atmosphere. Although a large hotel it still had a peaceful atmosphere. The gardens are so beautiful. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its location is fantastic. Its a 40 minute stroll to the old town restaurants and 10€ for a cab back. The walk along the promenade to Camara to Logos is worth doing too. Takes about 1 1/2 hours with stops to take in the views. Bus back is frequent and cheap. Loads of great restaurants around the hotel too.

Weeks break on Madeira
Excellent hotel with very friendly staff throughout. Located close enough to walk to the centre of Funchal with also a lovely promenade in the opposite direction. Porto Mare Basilico restaurant was very good. Local area also provided some super restaurants.
